The Obermeyer Corra women’s Insulated Ski Jacket, is a stylish jacket that still performs pretty well. With its 550 down fill it is one of Obermeyers warmest jackets. In addition the Obermeyer Corra has HydroBlock outer fabric to keep you dry in most conditions. The Obermeyer Corra does come in European sizes, so be aware. It seems like a size 8 is pretty similar to a M. The jacket has an active fit that is a little tight in the shoulders, and It also runs a bit short. It does have a snow skirt and adjustable hem to keep the cold out. The stylish outer shell has two chest pockets that seem a bit high, but are good for a phone or other media device. The two hand-warming pockets are good, but have large metal zippers that may allow water to enter in really wet conditions. Overall, The Obermeyer Corra Insulated Ski Jacket is a great option if you want a stylish jacket that is also very warm. It also performs well enough to keep you dry in most conditions.

Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement. Size M Pants that have a bit more room to fit my thighs and big butt but fit well in the waist. That way, not only can I utilize my pockets, I can also ride freely and comfortably on the hill. Oh and of course getting first chair with 12” of fresh powder on the mountain.
Turn Off’s: Size M jackets that are too tight in the shoulders and hips while being boxy in the waist. I really don’t like a tight fit at the hips that rides up and allows snow in my jacket and pants. The jacket should stay in place! Size M Pants that fit too tight in the thigh so I can’t use my pockets but so loose in the waist they fall down and I get snow in my pants. Crowds in the mountains, and not being able to find a place to park at the trailhead or ski resort
